Script Frenzy is done...

But we continue the writing of the script anyway. We didn't make it to the 100 pages required to win April's Script Frenzy Contest, but we did pretty well for only getting together only a few days this month. If nothing else, it got us to start writing the rough draft, and the pages we do have is a good start.

We had our first writing session in May this week, and it went fairly well considering life is popping up all over the place these days. Jessie had finals this week, and I'm preparing to move to cheaper lodgings, so I don't think it's too surprising that we didn't do a whole lot of writing.

Writing did take place, however, and it's a pivotal scene that we are working on right now. Our main character talks to our love interest for the first time. It's a fairly difficult scene to write because we have to make it clear that these people have chemistry and we need to make it seem natural that he would go out with her later that night. All in all a huge task, and I imagine this is one scene that will be rewritten many times, and I'll enjoy developing it over the coming months.

For those that want to keep track, even though it means little at this point, we wrote another page and a half, almost all of it dialogue. Food figures heavily into this scene, like it seems to in all of our scenes. I wonder if that means anything...

Now it's time to start moving. See you all next week.


  1. I was going to do script frenzy too, but guess what? I didn't! Not at all! I was going to write a teen sex comedy for girls and gay dudes, since all the teen sex comedies ever written were for men.

  2. That's too bad, I'd like to read that script. You should write it anyway, Script Frenzy be damned!
